What is LRC all about?
Do you wish you had something like Girls Rock Louisville camp when you were a kid? Do you want to let loose for the weekend and play rockin’ music while supporting GRL? Then Ladies Rock Camp is for you! LRC is similar to what youth do during our summer camp: receive instrument instruction, form a band, and write and perform an original song in just four days! In addition, you will attend a variety of workshops with topics related to being an empowered rocker.
Who can apply for LRC?
LRC is for any woman or gender non-conforming individual over the age of 21 who wants to rock out while supporting GRL! There is absolutely no musical experience necessary and we will provide all instruments for all who attend
How much is tuition?
Tuition for LRC will be on a sliding scale ($200 – $400) based on how much you are able to contribute. All proceeds from LRC go directly to supporting future Girls Rock Louisville programming. Meals and drinks included!

Do you only teach Rock Music?
NO! Rock is in our name, but we support all the ways folks want to “rock” — whatever that means to them! We teach, listen to, and love all sorts of music from rock to hip-hop, jazz to folk, pop to punk! Participants are encouraged to explore and create any kind of music that they feel passionate about!
***We have very limited space available (16 spots!), so please submit your application as soon as possible. It is very important that participants commit to attend all sessions of the program and the showcase. If you are unable to attend the full week, we ask that you consider applying again another time.***
